Windows no longer maximize to split when dragged (Windows 11)

Hi all -
I recently had a few updates applied to my machine, one for Windows 11 itself and one for DisplayFusion.

Since then, when I drag a window that's maximized to one split (by either a Trigger or double-clicking the title bar) to another split, it doesn't maximize. It used to 'ghost' into the split to show me that it would maximize if I dropped it there - and then did so when I dropped the window.

I went through all the settings and didn't see any that might control this behavior - is anyone else seeing this?

Thank you!

Hi Aaron,

In the DisplayFusion Settings > Window Management tab, do you have "Enable maximized window dragging between monitors" enabled, along with the two child settings below it?

Hi Owen - thanks for the response!
Short version: yep
Details:
I originally did not have the second sub-item checked ("when dragging non-maximized...").
I reconfirmed the issue.
Checked the second one (so that all 3 are checked) and hit Apply.
Waited for a refresh.
Checked the problem again, and it still occurs.
Be well,
Aaron

Hi Aaron,

Thanks for sending that over, we've made some changes in our latest beta that might fix this up. Can you update and let me know if the issue persists? Here's the link: https://www.displayfusion.com/Download/Beta/

Hi Owen -
Alas, no luck. I've updated to 10.1 (Beta 2), but the issue persists.
Thanks!

Could you send me over a debug log? Here are the steps:

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

Thanks Owen - log attached.

In this log, I:
* turned on L1
* Double-clicked the title bar to maximize Firefox to a split
* Tried dragging to another split on the same monitor (this is a one-monitor, multi-split setup) at 7:06:45 or so
* The window did NOT resize and maximize to match the split to which it was being dragged, and did not highlight the split as I dragged. Not sure if you'll see anything in the log.
* Double-clicked the title bar again so there would be another event

So you're looking in between the two maximize-to-split events, I think.

Thanks for sending that over, it looks like DisplayFsuion is ignoring the maximize because it thinks the window is being dragged to the same monitor it started on (the maximizing should only work when it's being dragged to a different monitor). Could you send me over a video of the issue?

I'm confused - maybe there's a terminology mismatch.

I have one physical monitor. Always have.

I use DF to allocate that monitor into work zones via Splits.

In previous versions, before a recent update, when I dragged a window that was maximized-to-split, and hovered over a different Split, it would highlight the split with a semi-transparent black overlay, showing me where the window would end up if I dropped it onto the Split.

So if I understand your use of the word Monitor to mean physical display screen, then yes, it is being dragged to the same Monitor, as I mentioned in my previous reply and the title of this thread.

What I'm missing is the old functionality for dragging maximized-to-split windows to other splits, on the same monitor.

I don't know that it will help, but there's a video attached.

Yeah it counts for monitor splits too, so DisplayFusion thinks it's moving to the same monitor split it started in, rather then a different one. Thanks for sending that video over, we have some changes coming in our next beta that might fix this up, so we'll let you know once it's released to try out.

Thanks!

Thanks. Downloaded and ran, but it hangs. I click past the license and options, and when I click "Install", it says "Setup is preparing to install DisplayFusion on your computer" but never does anything, and that window cannot be moved, closed, or cancelled.

I'm upgrading from Beta 2 to Beta 3, and tried rebooting my machine first. No luck.

I tried Uninstalling and doing a fresh reinstall - but the uninstall hung as well.

Sorry - update, I was able to unintall Beta 2, install Beta 3, and I'm afraid it did not fix the issue.

Could you send me over another debug log from that beta? Here are the steps again:

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

Around 8:03 AM. I maximized a File Explorer window into a split.
Dragged it to a new split - noted that it did not re-maximize to that split. (This is the problem.)
Double-clicked on the title bar to maximize it to the destination split area.

So the problem is between the two maximize commands.

It looks like DisplayFusion still thinks it's getting moved to the same split so it's ignoring it. We'll open this back up for us to take another look at.

Thanks!
